Clear and Present Danger: Are We on the Eve of War With North Korea?

Secretary of Defense James Mattis recently said that North Korea's advancing nuclear missile programs present the most urgent threat to U.S. national security. In fact, he said they're a "clear and present danger."

"That is war talk. When you have the Defense Secretary saying 'clear and present danger' that is law talk for a reason to go to war," Glenn said Wednesday on radio.

The U.S. reportedly has three aircraft carrier groups off the coast of North Korea.

"Anytime we have ever launched a strike of any kind where the country is near water, we have had three aircraft carrier groups in the area. That's the only time that has happened in our past," Glenn said.

Consulting Jason Buttrill, head researcher/writer for The Glenn Beck Program and former intelligence analyst, Glenn asked about this telling move.

"Can you think of a way that this ends well?" Glenn asked.

"No, not at all," Jason replied.

Based on the language used by Secretary Mattis, Jason believes the U.S. could very well be setting up for a preemptive strike.

"We have not seen this kind of buildup except on the eve of war. And it's not good . . . it could change the entire world overnight," Glenn said.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: By the way, I don't know if you saw this: Defense Secretary Mattis said that North Korea's advancing nuclear missile programs were the most urgent threat to national security. In fact, yesterday he said, quote, they're a clear and present danger. That is war talk.

When you have the Defense Secretary saying, "Clear and present danger," that is -- that's law talk for a reason to go to war.

We have three aircraft carrier groups now off the coast of North Korea. The only time that we can find, that we have ever put three aircraft carrier groups together was right before the Gulf War. And before that, I think it was Bosnia. Any time we have ever launched a strike of any kind where the country is near water, we have had three aircraft carrier groups in the area. That's the only time that has happened in our past.

Hopefully, this is nothing to see here. But with that and Mattis saying clear and present danger, the world could change overnight.

GLENN: Jason, can you give me an update on the aircraft carriers in North Korea.

JASON: So we now have three that are hovering around the Korean Peninsula. Hasn't been seen since every other time we've actually gone to war. Kosovo, First Iraq War, Second Iraq War. That's the kind of troop movement and buildup we're seeing.

GLENN: We don't have -- I want to make sure this is clear: We don't have three aircraft carriers in a region unless we're going to war. That's the pattern.

JASON: Historically.

GLENN: Okay.

What about the Secretary of Defense saying yesterday that North Korea is a clear and present danger?

JASON: Sounds like they're setting up a preemptive action to me.

GLENN: Can you think of a way that this ends well?

JASON: No. Not at all.

GLENN: Leon, when I was in -- when Pat and I were in Baltimore, we used to call the pizza places around the Pentagon. Do you remember this, Pat? The pizza places --

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: We knew that when the pizza places would say tons of pizzas ordered for the Pentagon last night -- this was before the internet or anything. This was like 1989, we knew that when the pizza places were delivering at night, we were on the eve or a couple of days away from war.

Any sign that you have seen that this is going to end really horribly?

JASON: It's extremely difficult to predict, you know, anything pertaining to Korea. You know, their thought processes are not kind of in keeping with our traditional kind of game theory is. This is part of what makes it so difficult to react to them rationally. So we hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

GLENN: We have -- we have not seen this kind of buildup, except on the eve of war. And it's not good. And it could change -- it could change the entire world overnight.

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
